      Audience Member What a bad movie. Although it's a John Wayne colorized oldie the acting is terrible. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 11/09/18 Full Review Audience Member A singing cowboy who's also a government agents heads out west to foil a plot to steal everyone's water. Other than the shock of seeing John Wayne lip sync to a few western recordings clearly sung by someone else, this is all by-the-numbers with little action. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member The story was okay John Wayne's screen presence was the main highlight of the film for me. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Decent little John Wayne "B" western which is better than some of his "A" westerns!!!!!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member John Wayne as a singing cowboy is so implausible that one can't even watch the really bad lip synch with someone else's voice. the plot was predictable--water rights in the West. However, it WAS a John Wayne movie. Quotable quote: "He went that way -> " Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member One of and endless series of John Wayne "B" westerns he made in the 1930's. This one is a little better than most, still, nothing special at all in any way. Poorly acted. John Wayne's acting did improve in time, but he was never a great actor, Oscar or no Oscar.
